Presidents Interfaith & Community Service Challenge (Fall 2012 events) Make-A-Difference Day: (October 27 nd ): The College at Brockport has been participating in Make a Difference Day since Projects have ranged from painting fences, planting flowers and raking leaves to sanitizing the child care facilities. This year The Community Development Department coordinated a campus-wide canned goods drive for the local Brockport Ecumenical Food Shelf. Celebration of Gratitude: (November 15 th ) : Celebration of Gratitude is part of Brockport's involvement in President Obama's Interfaith & Community Service Challenge. This year the one-hour interfaith service focused on our local community’s gratitude for food – from the farms it is grown on to the workers who harvest the food to the food we have on our tables. Seasons of Gratitude: (December 1 st – 21 st ): During Seasons of Gratitude, The College at Brockport community supports local families in need. Seasons of Gratitude is an adaptation of the former Holiday Helping Hand campaign with a primary focus of food collection. Our participation allows us to create opportunities to engage a broad cross-section of faculty, staff, students and community partners in building relationships as we coordinate food collection and distribution as determined by need. Walking the Labyrinth: The event aims to help visitors open their minds to the variety of religions found within their own community. “The event is a self-guided tour and exploration of different beliefs,” says Karen Podsiadly, director of Brockport’s Office of Community Development. “Because it’s a self-guided tour, the beliefs of others will not be forced on anyone. Instead, the individual is given the opportunity to form their own beliefs and opinions while reflecting on their religious journey.”
